Understanding Mendham Borough’s COVID-19 positive testing result numbers
Our numbers are provided to us from two sources: The Morris County Office of Health Management
and the Bernards Township Department of Health, which we contract with for Board of Health services
Mendham Borough does not have direct access to the state database where all numbers on communicable diseases are kept. Due to HIPPA restrictions we are only able to provide the numbers that are made available to us from these two sources. Additionally, we are not provided information on the number of deaths that have occurred in town from the COVID-19 virus.
